Sorry Roger, Could you provide further information.
There is a picture of an un indentified Unrebuilt Battle of Britain. Do you know which one it is?
The scrap merchant at Bridgend was RS Hayes or Heyes.
Cheers
Andy

Sorry Andy I cannot give you any info.I have been trying to find out through the Railway Clubs I am a member of,and have even tried messing around with the Picture to see whether or not I could read its number.
The Yard was indeed run by Hayes...and Birds.
EDIT
Extra,Found a list of this type of Locos scrapped at this yard,surprisingly not very many Bullieds at all.
34062       17 Squadron
34075     264 Squadron  
34083     605 Squadron

34014    Budleigh Salterton
35021    New Zealand Lines

Hi Roger
34062 was a Rebuilt so that brings it down to 34075 or 34083, When I first viewed the picture the number looked like 34075 I was able to copy and zoom, although the number is not sharp it certainly contains the number 7. so can only be 34075
The yard is indeed was called Tremains  and RS Hayes had it until 1965 when it then became Birds.
Two locomotives that were not scrapped by RS Hayes  although purchased, were King class 6023 and 6024, they were enroute via Barry, where they were stopped as they were out of gauge, subsequently being resold to Woodhams.
Hope this helps.
Cheers
Andy

Hi Roger,

I have a feeling this is one that has been preserved/restored going by the writing on the smoke deflectors! I could be wrong of course!

Hi Andy,I thought you may be interested !!.................Iv'e just bought a new book (very second hand though) which lists all the Loco's that left Barry between Sept 1968 and August 1983.I used to spend hours down at Woodhams Yard "driving" these so couldn't resist.

Regards Roger.

Hi Roger, 34075 was disposed in the Birds Scrapyard Bridgend on the 07/05/1966 whilst the
34083 was disposed of in the Tremains Scrapyard also in Bridgend on the 31/10/1965.
I did a Google search for both loco's and one site revealed their final demise.

Nice thread, Roger. Very Happy It's difficult to be sure but it looks as if the nameplate is still carried........very unusual if it is.!
